Is there a way to print a colorless (just black text) doc when my color cartridge is empty?
I desperately need to print resumes and cover letters and can't afford a new color cartridge. It sucks being a member of the working poor...where less than $40.00 can keep you from getting a better job.
The manual for my HP printer says that it will definitely not print unless both cartridges have ink in them. On the other hand there are computer parts stores that will accept empty ink cartridges as credit toward the purchase of new ones.
What make and model is your printer ?
My old HP will print when the color is empty - my new one won't.
If the printer will print at all ... then you can just print in B&W
I think I saw an ad at Staples -- 4$ Refund on emptys toward a new one.
There are such things as chip resetters for some cartridges which will make your printer think a cartridge is full and therefore allow the printer to work, they are not expensive but you will need to do a search on Google for them. these resetters are usually cartridge specific and will only work on one type but I hear there are also ones which will work on all printers for a specific make such as Epson, worth searching out for though if you want to print with just black ink.
